IAP-225 wifi-uplink and no client IP

Hi!

New airhead here.


I've set up an IAP-225 as a standalone AP with wifi-uplink. 

This works fine, it connects and all. But when i try to connect clients to it, they won't get any IP! Is this by design? I have a remote DHCP server which i wanted to use, but i think i might need to add one in the AP instead? And how would i setup this and get my clients to communicate with the rest of the network?

 

So i have a router---wifiap(netgear with dhcp) *** iap225 *** clients

***= wireless.

 

Thanks!

Re: IAP-225 wifi-uplink and no client IP

What is the client VLAN configuration within your Virtual Controller? Is this controller assigned (e.g hidden behind the IAP) or static and tagging the VLANs accordingly? Does the router---wifiap(netgear with dhcp)  support VLANs?


ACMP, ACSA, ACDX #985

Re: IAP-225 wifi-uplink and no client IP

Thanks for getting back to me!

 

client VLAN configuration isjust default meaning i haven't set anything up. 

 

I guess this means it's hidden behind the AP? What i think is weird is hat it works perfectly fine with ethernet uplink but not wifi. However the docs say that i need to setup a dhcp server on the ap. Is this correct?

 

Edit: It seems wifi uplink is stuck at probing. And eventually the AP drops the connection (both leds goes off on 2.4/5ghz)

Re: IAP-225 wifi-uplink and no client IP

Sounds like the IAP uplink is the issue. Do you see the IAP as a client? What is the WiFi uplink priority configured within the IAP? Is it at the top?

Re: IAP-225 wifi-uplink and no client IP

I cannot see the ap as a client, should I?

 

Thanks!
